I was at the grocery store the other day,  and as I was looking at the eggs, determining what was an affordable price point, a gentleman looked at me and said, "Won't be able to buy eggs pretty soon!"  I'm pretty sure he was aggravated at the skyrocketing price of eggs.

Are people finding alternatives to high egg prices? There actually might be an answer if prices continue to rise.

Have you ever purchased Egg Beaters?  I'm not sure why I don't buy them more often. They are called egg substitutes, but the only thing that's missing is the shell, as far as I'm concerned. They are real eggs after all.


32 ounces of Food Club brand Egg Beaters called 'great egg-spectations', cost $3.99.  16 ounces of Food Club brand will cost $2.99.  Comparatively, a 12-count carton of Food Club eggs will cost you $3.99.


My point is....we might not be there yet, but if prices continue to rise, and egg beater prices continue to remain the same, will you be making the switch to the 99% real egg product substitute?

Prices I found for your egg shopping included the following:

  • $4.39 at Lunds Buyerly's
  • $4.65 at Aldi
  • $5.80 at Walmart
  • $3.99 Coborn's

I noticed something else I'd never seen before. Organic brown eggs are now cheaper most of the time, than white eggs! So if you are looking for the cheapest egg prices, don't overlook the organic eggs!

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
